Wrestler-actor Dara Singh’s condition continues to be very critical with NDTV reporting that the actor is brain dead and a recovery is unlikely. The channel also reported that Dara Singh has stopped responding to medication.
Singh is undergoing dialysis at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital here and doctors say there has been significant damage to his brain.
“His condition is still very critical. MRI is showing significant damage to brain due to decreased oxygen supply to brain when he had the cardiac arrest,” Ram Narain, COO, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, told IANS this morning.
“There are no medicines that will reverse the brain damage… only if a miracle happens. He might even slip into coma,” the doctor said.
Dara Singh continues to be critical.
“His condition is not good at all,” his son Vindu Dara Singh said.
